Freeing Your Child from Anxiety, Revised and Updated Edition: Practical Strategies to Overcome Fears, Worries, and Phobias and Be Prepared for Life–from Toddlers to Teens by Tamar E. Chansky
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book isn’t just for my kids: it’s for me. Before the second page, I knew this book would help me with my own struggles. Avoiding social situations? Yup. Nervous at big events? Yes. Sure, this book is meant for parents to help their children, but the advice in this book is so real and practical that everyone benefits.
The package presented here comes in nicely organized phases: first the reassurance that you can do this, then the signs of what to look for, then the different specific anxieties, and then the help that is available. After that, the heart-to-heart advice that actually works. As a parent having felt many of the issues my children go through, I can personally attest the advice in this book works.
This book uses logical steps and coaching, along with pictures and review bullets to re-enforce the core concepts. Later in the book, specific situations are discussed where the earlier training is applied to that situation. Without going into personal detail about my children, I can say that the steps are proven by my other research, as well as real life implementation. This specific book makes it easy to read, easy to find, and easy to apply.
Thanks to Harmony and Crown for making this book available to me electronically for review. Thanks to this book, I have been reassured, instructed, and improved, both in myself and my family.
